We continue the week of intense astrological energies today with two major events: 1) Venus meeting up with Saturn and 2) Mars making an exact square to Uranus. The two events will happen within ten minutes of each other this evening, but the energies will build all day.
Venus will make exact conjunction with Saturn at 7:50 pm ET/00:50 am UT and Mars will make a square to Uranus at 8:00 pm ET/1:00 am UT.
On one level, these energies bring headaches, heartaches, insomnia, accidents, shocks, control issues, and relationship issues. We can be hyper-focused on our own needs. The mind tends to devise ways of getting those needs met. It can get down and dirty.
But on another level, a grander level, something more is happening. This is the equation:
Uranus in Aries wants to change and free us for new and better things + Mars in Capricorn wants to ground things firmly + Venus and Saturn in Scorpio want to create new frameworks and relationships that transform = The Return of Wisdom or The Second Renaissance or The Re-Enchantment of the World.
Call it whatever you like, but a sea change is occurring. It is the return to the old, old way. Natural world order is being remembered and re-imprinted. It is an alignment of the dreaming of Gaia Sophia and the dreaming of humanity to actualize the potential of humanity. The potential of humanity is a special thing.
The hidden aspect within the energies is the Moon's entry into Leo at 1:45 pm ET/6:45 pm UT - joining the Black Moon in Leo. This means it is a "Black Moon day" and shadow sides are triggered. People tend to project their own fears and feelings onto others. Today and tomorrow are the last full Black Moon days of the Black Moon's transit through Leo. This means it is the final stage of rebirth for those with the Sun or Black Moon in Leo or Aquarius! So in this way they are happy days. But the Moon's placement adds fuel to an already volatile energetic dynamic today. Emotions will whirl.
The best way to navigate this energy is to move it. It is detrimental to hold it in our bodies - we need to move it through and out. The energy is trying to spur us to action - to respond - in bold ways. Uranus feels like lightning in the body. It's our "inner Thor." We interpret it as anxiety, jitteriness, and an overall unsettled feeling. But it is the same thing as the feeling of excitement minus most of the fear. And there is nothing to fear from the changes that are underway in our lives and in our world. Uranus puts us where we need to be when we can't do it for ourselves. We can trust it.
We can also trust in the spiritual force of the Wisdom Goddess Kamala, who is on duty to assure us. Kamala is uniquely interested in the mundane affairs of humanity - much more than any of the other Mahavidyas. Her consciousness is in closer range with ours. She values and enhances our natural instincts. And she never leaves anyone behind. She will scoop you up and carry you along if you are struggling.
Within the swirl of issues that result from such strong energies today, wise owls twist it all another way because we understand what is really happening. One paradigm is falling while the remnants of another paradigm is forming anew. Go outside, take a walk, stretch your body. But most of all respond to your heart today and be a part of the equation. Be a part of the re-enchantment of the world.
